The CEI Group, Inc. has become a Platinum Sponsor of the American Fleet & Leasing Association (AFLA), the company announced. It was previously a Gold Sponsor of the organization.
In addition to its sponsorship, CEI has seven members of the organization, including Wayne Smolda, its chief executive officer, and Vincent Brigidi, president and chief operating officer.
"AFLA’s year-long efforts and annual conference provide some of the best educational and networking opportunities for fleet professionals,” Brigdi said. “AFLA as an organization has not only established itself as a premiere destination for the leaders in the fleet industry, but the annual conference has become a ‘must-attend’ event that is always well worth the price of admission."
